Me on Monday x

Blimey it's August and this weekend it was HOT!

Saturday was an early start because it was the annual village show. I went all Kirsty Allsopp and decided to put in a few little things for some of the creative classes.

I entered three photographs into the photography classes. And my crocheted poncho and felt kitty cat for the sewing and crochet sections.

The parents came over in the afternoon and we wandered around looking at all the fabulous vegetables, flowers and floral artistry. And we looked at the beautiful creativity of all the handmade items. Then we had tea and cake.

Look at this lovely display of flowers................

Loads of beautiful fruit and flowers...................

And delightful cakes and breads, plus wines and liqueurs................

Imagine my surprise, and delight, when my poncho won a prize......................

Yep, that is a First in the category. What a chuffed girl I was and still am. My mum was unable to speak!

It was all a lot quieter yesterday. The clouds came out and so I sat and crocheted a little, blogged and read, and cooked something yummy for tea.

What did you all do?


  1. Well done! What a lovely surprise for you!

  2. Is that the poncho you showed the photos of a while back? because I thought it was gorgeous. Definitely prize wiining! What a great way to start the week. Hope the rest of it is a good one too

  3. Well done Jo - this is beautiful.

  4. Congratulations on your first place prize. All those flowers and cakes - it would have been fun to be a judge.

  5. Woohoo! First place... well done! Have a great week x

  6. Hey, well done you! How super! I love shows like this - we used to have a county one when I was young, and we spent weeks in the summer term at school putting together our story-telling and handwriting entries. You've really captured the spirit of a local show with those bright photos ...
